    Magical Narration Brings Classic to Life!
    December 20, 2011
    i blog 4 books
    As much as I like to read, I always sell myself short on reading "true literature" . . . especially books that were written pre-20th century. Listening to the audio version was a wonderful re-introduction to Dickens! It was incredibly easy to follow along, and the story came alive. It was magical.

    The narrator impressed me with all of the voices that he did. In scenes when multiple characters were conversing, it was easy to follow along due to the unique voices that he gave each character. His British accent made me feel as though Dickens himself could be narrating the story.

    Listening to this book together would be a wonderful family tradition! Both young and old will love this story! Don't miss out on this moving story!

    I received a free copy of this audio book from christianaudio in exchange for my fair and honest review.

    A Christmas Carol is the classic story of Scrooge and the spirits who visit him one winter night to change his stingy, evil ways. I'd seen the movie a few thousand times but never read the book, and considering what time of year this is, I thought it'd be a good time to go for an audio version. I loaded it on the iPod for a road trip, and we listened to it as we covered some miles.

    The book is divided into five staves. The first half of the first one was a bit hard to get into, as the author was laying the groundwork through describing the shop, the character, and a little of the history behind Scrooge and his business. There wasn't much action and the descriptions drug on a bit, so those first 20 minutes were a little dry. But once the action got going, no one wanted to hit pause.

    This is a feel-good story about learning what really matters in life, and one that I guess will never get old. What made this version of it particulary spectacular was the narrator (Simon Vance), who has to be the most perfect fit for any audio book I've ever listened to. His voice set the mood, made me feel like I really was in England in the 1800's, and magnificently portrayed the characters throughout the story. I can't say enough about what a wonderful job he did in reading this book.

    I'd recommend this one for those long drives to relatives' houses over Christmas vacation, for sitting around the fireplace while the Christmas tree is lit, or for popping in your mp3 player while you're jogging off the holiday calories. But I must warn you that it's probably going to be over the head of your small children, and some of the descriptions of the Marley's ghost at the beginning may frighten them. As for the rest of us, well, I guess we need to be frightened every now and then!
